Achieve cheekbones Maleficent would be proud of with this on point contouring look. A fierce black lip pops against paler skin, highlights with woodland tones to really complete the spooky vibe about this combination. Intricate eyebrow detailing and use of lines allows the eyes to be framed without overshadowing the overall result.
Mystical and intriguing, this look focuses not just on the face but commits further to frame the neck and shoulders too. For a full effect, the turquoise hair matches the dominating hue of this design, with metallic gold used to add further intricate detailing, The lines of this look frame the face to still flatter whilst not losing the costume appeal.
A sugar skull may be a common choice nowadays but that cannot detract from the impressiveness and detail in this particular look.Dedicating herself right to her fingertips, this model sets high standards for those Halloween lovers who don’t want to hold back.

Okay, be nice, this is my first time doing something like this. The story: There was once a beautiful woman, all the other women in their town envied her. They would gossip as she walked the streets and were all afraid that their husbands would leave them for her. Soon, the women couldn't bear the jealousy anymore. So one night they trapped her and turned her into stone. Many, many years later the marble starts to crack. She was still alive. And now she's coming back for revenge. ?☠️? #mua #motd #makeup #makeupartist #halloween #halloweenmakeup #statue #marble #colorado #followme #nyx #revenge #anastasiabeverlyhills #morphe #beautiful
Hauntingly beautiful, this cracked stone effect combines a juxtaposition of fragile yet heavy detailing. Seemingly simple, this look may take time to master and apply correctly to evoke an effortless result. Versatile to try you could play around with the level of intricacy in this look or go whole hog and do a full body version.
Who said clowns cant be scary and chic at the same time? Exaggerated and fun, this style sticks to a limited colour palette to not overdo things, going overboard on the eyes and lips for frightful result as desired. Additional body paint to the neck emphasises the face and finishes the look.
For my first Halloween look I used: @lorealmakeup Infallible Blackbuster Liner, @nyxcosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, @morphebrushes 35S Palette, and @katvondbeauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw. #makeup #makeuplover #makeuplovers #makeuplook #mua #selftaughtmua #selftaught #motd #beauty #beautylover #beautylovers #loreal #lorealparis #blackliner #nyx #nyxcosmetics #morphe #morphebrushes #katvond #katvondbeauty #halloween #halloweenmakeup #halloweenmakeupideas #halloweenmakeuplook #comicmakeup
